Belgian side Zulte Waregem are said to be confused by the transfer situation involving Leeds United and their left-back Bryan Verboom.

Voetbal Nieuws is reporting that whilst Leeds, Verboom and the Belgian side have agreed terms on a transfer Leeds have not moved to finalise the deal in the past three days.

The delay in Leeds confirming the transfer has both the player and his current club concerned as both would like to consider other options in case Leeds have got permanent cold feet over a deal to sign the player.

There could be a simple reason behind the delay.

Leeds have been trying to secure the transfer of Torino central defender Pontus Jansson over the past few days and Verboom may have been put on the back-burner as a consequence.

It might also be a sign that Charlie Taylor looks set to stay at Elland Road.

The talented left-back’s contract expires at the end of the season and had a transfer request rejected by Leeds earlier this summer.

It is due to the uncertainty surrounding Taylor’s future that Verboom has been pursued by Leeds.
